Maryland Lifestyle Maternity Portraits — the Swanns

Today I am so excited to share a peek at a Maryland lifestyle maternity portrait session!

This summer has been an exciting for our family!  Not only did we get to welcome our niece, Halle, we’re also counting down the days until a new little girl joins us, too!

Josh & Elizabeth are adding a sweet girl to their gaggle this September, and we’re all counting down the days until we get to meet her.  (Is it here yet!?)

We’ve gotten to become parents alongside these two.  Somehow, we’ve been all had this gig for 4+ years now.  And then, somewhere along the way, we all woke up, blinked, and had three whole human beings we’re responsible for!! Haha!

It’s safe to say, we’ve come a long way since our Itz & Switz days.

Alas, I couldn’t be more excited to be an aunt to this sweet girl and I can’t wait to see the little person she’ll grow up to be.  It’s one of the greatest privileges <3

To commemorate this season, we snuck in a quick maternity session one evening.  Between juggling schedules and childcare and #allthethings, it’s a bit of a miracle we were able to make it happen.  Safe to say, it was worth it though ;)

There’s little better than golden summer light, an open field, and people that I love!

Plus, it’s safe to say that this little girl has brothers who already adore her.  I can’t wait to see Rhett and Owen love on their sister, so soon!  And it’s about time that they learn how to add some bows to this crew! ;)

Without further ado, I hope you enjoy a peek at this (extra) sweet Maryland Lifestyle Maternity portrait session!



Happy Tuesday, friends.  I hope it’s one that is full of joy, laughter, and an episode or two of binge watching.

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!  Their session in New Jersey was filled with gorgeous light, sweet smiles, and so much love & laughter.

Connor and Alli's wedding celebration was full of lush florals, gorgeous details, and a whole lot of joy.  Their first look was one of the most sacred moments I've witness on a wedding day... filled with so much delight and love!

One of my greatest inspirations comes from exploring and the California coast fulfills that wanderlust like nothing else.  Anytime I have rolling hills and oceanside views, I'm in heaven.

She's the ultimate hypewoman. I was pretty nervous about being photographed and Lauren made everything fun and flexible. Honestly, I can't imagine the day without her and her team. They were wonderful and hearing from Lauren was always a genuine delight.
